The Role:                    

Working out of our Lower Hutt Depot, you’ll work alongside our experienced Gas Technicians, and learn a sought-after trade and valuable skills to become a qualified Gas Technician yourself.  Learn how to provide gas distribution services by getting hands on experience installing gas pipes and metering sets, completing gas connections to houses and assisting with gas leak repairs and gain a national certificate in gas distribution networks in the process.

In addition, you’ll be a great team contributor with strong interpersonal skills who is keen to learn from your experienced workmates as well as in a formal training course.  Your previous work experience will likely include working with machinery and physical work where you’ve had the opportunity to show initiative and self-manage.   

You will need to also have:

  • Level 1 (School Certificate) passes in English and Mathematics
  • A Gas background or interest, i.e. completion of a pre-trades course would be an advantage, but not required.
